Ferrari were back at work at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain on Sunday, with Michael Schumacher and Felipe Massa at the wheel for the former world champions.

Schumacher had run solo on Friday, setting a best time of 1m 32.702s after 92 laps in the 248 F1, before the team took a well-earned break on Saturday.

For Sunday, the German was again at the wheel of the team’s 2006 machine, focussing on tyres and aerodynamic work as he clocked up another 93 laps, his best time a 1m 32.007s.

Massa, meanwhile, made use of an F2004 chassis to concentrate on Bridgestone tyre development. The Brazilian completed 65 laps, the quickest a 1m 32.307s. Schumacher and Massa continue testing in Bahrain on Monday.
